District Magistrate Devendra Pandey was undertaking a surprise inspection when he asked the students to read from the English book and they were unable to do it.

“After this, he asked sahayak shikshika (assistant teacher) Rajkumari and subsequently the pradhan shikshika (head teacher) Sushila Bharti to read from the book. They also were unable to read,” the basic shiksha adhikari said.

The district magistrate told them that he was not asking them the meaning of what was written in the book and merely wanted them to read it, but they were unable to do it. The district magistrate then directed that both of them be suspended, he said.
